This is a FREE webinar developed and presented by ACOEM and AIHA.

Exacerbated by the COVID pandemic, occupational health professionals are being exposed more than ever to receiving health information from personnel and employees under their care and management. While there are rules and regulations governing the privacy of worker protected health information (“PHI”), these are commonly misunderstood. Furthermore, many occupational health professionals don’t receive education on them. As a result, they are left to their own internet research or may rely on hearsay information as to what these rules mean and when they apply.

This webinar will provide an overview of what rules apply to occupational health professionals and their practice, and the specific requirements of those rules. Even where the rules may not directly apply, there should still be an understanding of them as a form of guidance in establishing a standard of care for personal health information.
